Sound Change in Interacting Human Systems
3rd Biennial Workshop on Sound Change
University of California, Berkeley, May 28-31, 2014


Increasingly, the study of sound change in language draws upon research in sociology, phonetics and phonology, and approaches in computer simulation of social interactions. The aim is to include scholars from various fields of linguistics, many of whom have divergent research methods and foci. This is intended to train many eyes on fundamental problems in sound change and foster new directions for research.

This workshop is supported by the Department of Linguistics at UC Berkeley, and by a generous grant from the National Science Foundation. We are very grateful to our sponsors.

Organizers are Keith Johnson, Andrew Garrett, and Larry Hyman.
